Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Pott’s Landbier, or “country beer,” is a traditional session lager with a decidedly malty backbone made up of a blend of German and North American malts. The smooth malt character is tempered by the German bittering hop Magnum, which lends a clean, crisp balance. This beer is finished with more German hops for a spicy herbal palate and aroma. Fermented with Pott’s proprietary lager yeast – and imbued with over 240 years of German brewing tradition -- this is just the beer to quench your summer thirst.

found this buried in the back of my cellar, totally in the dark and on the back of a musty shelf since it was purchased

eyes...
fluffy head on an easy pour, we're talking four fingers of craggy white foam, the color is really interesting, sort of brown but glowing ruby, excellent clarity with lots of tiny bubbles keeping the head upright and frothy (but not crazy like when you first pour it), nearly flawless looking glass of suds here

nose...
spicy and floral in an earthy way, dirty honey, musty grains, nice euro hop aroma, well balanced over all

taste etc...
mild mannered malt forward, this beer is like a nice neighbor, kind of there but you don't care (but they wont boff your wife when you are at work), nice body, nice enough malt flavor, interesting hop character, very smooth drinking... but medium of the road

verdict?
not bad, not great, a solid beer but nothing special
